SmartControl & our all new SmartControl Live software are powerful software tools to configure and adjust your Heusinkveld products. The general function of these applications is as follows:
All Heusinkveld SmartControl compatible products are plug-and-play. The use of SmartControl and SmartControl Live is optional but highly recommended. Next to the available mechanical adjustments it adds an extra layer of adjustability by software to your Heusinkveld products.
SmartControl & SmartControl Live are compatible with the following products:
Any input device (also from non-Heusinkveld brands) which has buttons and/or rotary inputs can be used to switch between settings and profiles in SmartControl Live.
SmartControl together with SmartControl Live offers you unparalelled freedom in when you want to apply specific settings to your Heusinkveld device. You have the option to create any kind of profile and load it while driving. SmartControl Live is your toolset, it is up to you how you use it to enhance your simracing experience.
Possible use cases for SmartControl Live are:
The possibilities are endless, and we’re looking forward to see how creative you are using SmartControl with SmartControl Live.
Here you will find SmartControl Live explanation videos & tutorials.
In this image you see an example of a Sim Pedals Ultimate+ profile created in SmartControl. It allows you to map pedal output curves, set deadzones, set the required brake force and store these device settings into a profile.
If you have multiple Heusinkveld devices (for example Sim Pedals and a Sim Handbrake), settings of multiple devices can be combined in a single profile.
In this case a profile is created for rainy conditions. It has a slightly less sensitive throttle and brake pedal, intended to improve the driveability of a car in rainy conditions.
In this image you see SmartControl Live set up to instantly switch profiles while driving. We have created 3 presets: Default, GT3 and Endurance. In this case, we have enabled the preset Endurance because we will be driving an endurance event and have created specific profiles for that car/event.
Each preset can contain multiple keybinds to activate profiles and/or change specific device settings. Here the Endurance preset contains keybinds to a Default-profile (for dry weather), the Rain-profile which we have just created (in case it starts to rain), as well as keybinds to adjust the required brake force on the fly.
In this configuration, you as a driver can use the configured keybinds to change between these profiles and brake force settings while you’re driving in your simulator.
